The Flyguys lose another one. Another rough start for this team with a long season ahead. The Flyers had 12 penalties, twice as many as the Avs and gave up three goals on power plays.
The Avalanche outshot the Flyers 17-3 in the first period and got goals from Brett Clark and Marek Svatos against Marty Biron to take a 2-0 lead.
The Flyers scored twice in the second period but both times the Avalanche quickly responded with goals and took a 4-2 lead into the final frame.
